Format: Paperback
This is the story of Gillian and Joyce Linton, who are sent to the Chalet School because their mother is seriously ill with TB. First published in 1934, it's one of my favourites of the Austrian Chalet School books, I think because of the strong sense of place, time and character EBD conveys here. There is a richness to this book, which deals with such serious issues as children learning to live with a parent's illness and relationships between growing siblings, without ever losing sight of the necessity for a childrens book to be enjoyable, even as it discusses serious matters. So many modern children's novels cop out by either being entirely frivolous or being unrelentingly grim. EBD gives us a much more rounded and realistic view of life by demonstrating how the two coexist.
Newcomers to the Chalet series must be warned that the paperback edition of The Chalet School And The Lintons contains only half the story. The original (and long out of print) hardback was so long that the decision was made to slice the book into two when the paperback reprint was published. You will need to buy A Rebel At The Chalet School to find out how the story ends...
